<p>Los Altos' first park is a wooded, 3.7-acre gem.  It is located just a short drive (or a pleasant walk) from downtown on the other side of the  Foothill Expressway. Hidden at the end of a long driveway, the park named after "the father of Los Altos"  opens up into a welcoming public space. Shoup Park beckons with its grassy areas and child-friendly spaces. Adobe Creek, which is often dry in the summer, runs along one side, and redwood trees provide enough shade for picnickers and birthday party celebrations.</p>
<p>The Garden House and the Patriot's Corner group picnic area are the two sites available for rental. There are two playgrounds, one for toddlers and one for older kids, including a short zip line for the adventurous. At the far corner is the veteran's memorial, "Liberty's Cradle," by Rebecca Truman. The Park is also home to the Underground, a teen center. The restrooms are cleaned often. The two parking lots, holding more than fifty-five cars combined, often fill on busy weekend days.</p>
